Having read the strip for awhile, he is a song writer who made a lot of money with a hit or two. So, he doesn't need to work for the money which makes the fact that he is a school janitor even more mustachian. I enjoy the relationship with his girlfriend, a teacher at the school. He bought her running socks for Christmas... to be picked up in CA, where there are great running trails. So, putting into practice the idea of experiences, not stuff.
